Wow! Has it been that long since I've shared anything on my blog? Time sure flies. Speaking of time flying by, I was thinking of how the small things in our lives add up.
We get a lot of junk mail in our mailbox. I'm referring to snail-mail, but it also applies to email as well. If you don't have a system for taking care of mail, you end up with large piles that look terrible, you eventually have to take care it, and it's always more frustrating to take care of a big pile of mail than a few pieces.
The solution? Take care of mail as soon as you check it. Trash it or shred it if you don't need to keep it. If it's a bill or something you can pay right away, do it now. If you need to keep it, file it or scan it now, don't wait!
This is related to so many other things in our lives. If we don't take care of things right away, they end up something a lot worse than they needed to be. Some things just build up frustration, like mail, weeds, dishes, dirty or unfolded clothes. Others can cost money like a leaky faucet, low air in the tire, a late payment, or a balance on your credit card.
What are some examples of things in your life or others that you've observed that has added up to much more than it should have? Please share in the comments below.
